of the republicans now. you were talking about bill clinton. >> democrats have now won the popular vote in five of six elections just as republicans did in five of six from 'ski6 - to-'88. they began a process of introspection and reflection and change that ultimately produced bill clinton and the new democratic movement and a victory four years later. they acknowledged they weren't speaking to as many people on the other side. if this coalition was a muyoert this year with all of the headwinds, it's a majority. and romney's response to say this coalition is being bribed, that's not ways to make friends and influence people. >> the way to win elections is not to insult people, and it's kind of insulting, and for the republican party, they have to go through the stages of grief. some of them are now in denial. as soon as they get past denial, they can look at exactly what went wrong. for mitt romney to talk about gifts and insult american voters is something that is not good. and what surprises me is how quickly republicans have run away from mitt romney. >> he said almost exactly the same thin
as high-ranking, frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. we need a person of enormous prestige and influence so have these parties sit down together. we're crumbling all over the middle east. >> john: that was john mccain talking about how much work is needed to regain credibility. >> boy. that will hurt your head if you think about that too long. >> john: somebody should tell him we have already had bill clinton trying to negotiate middle east peace. it has been attempted before and in fact the prime mainster of israel paid for it with his life. you know, i really think that there is no military solution to israel and palestine, and i'm on the side of any christian jew or muslim who is trying to solve our problems non-violently, because the only solution i think, is the next gandhi is going to have to come from israel or palestine. the next person to understand that non-violence is the only way to get social change out of a situation like this and that will also be a person male or female who understands social media and the digital
frankly as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker. >> joining me now is mark murray. mark, what are your thoughts on what john mccain he floated out there? >> well, you know, bill clinton was a troubleshooter for barack obama during the presidential contest, and he certainly knows his dealings in that really troubling, very difficult terrain of middle east politics. i would say he might be able to help out and negotiate a cease-fire, but actually completely solving the whole middle east process in conflict there with something he was unable to do as president. it's been a thorny issue for lots of presidents, and you understand why that world is so volatile and has repercussions throughout the entire globe. >> mark, back to first read and some of the assessment. obviously, the asap notion is an obvious one. we know that the white house and president talking with both morsi and netanyahu today. you heard -- i don't know
clinton in. he should be the mediator in this latest conflict. would israel or gaza welcome bill clinton? >> reporter: i've been saying that, actually, myself. i wrote a blog post on our "situation room" blog post months ago saying after george mitchell, the obama administration's special envoy for israeli/palestinian peace negotiations, after he ended his tour without any success at all. that's been more than a year ago. maybe a year and a half or so ago. i said they need -- really, they need someone who's got clout with the israelis. who's got clout with the palestinians in the arab world. i thought bill clinton, especially with his wife leaving as secretary of state, maybe that would be a good assignment for him. he's taken on other assignments like haiti relief, for example, the tsunami. i know he got -- the final months of his presidency to a deal between the israelis and the palestinians. i think mccain may be on to something. i don't know if bill clinton would want to do it. i've asked him that question in an interview i did with him a few months back. he didn't say no. he didn't

bill clinton help stop the fighting here in the middle east? i'll talk about that and more with the former british prime minister, the middle east special peace enjoy, tony blair. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer in jerusalem. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're coming to you live from jerusalem where there seems to be at least for now no end in sight to the fighting that's been going on between the israelis and hamas in gaza. today, sirens warned of more rockets from gaza coming into israel, sending terrified residents fleeing for safety, seeking refuge in bomb shelters. israeli officials say three people have died, 68 people have been wounded here in israel as the result of hamas rockets and missiles and the fear is just as deep in gaza as israeli missiles struck for a sixth consecutive day. among the latest targets, office buildings used by some media outlets in gaza, according to palestinian sources. at least two people died in that attack, pushing the palestinian death toll righ now to at least 104 with mo
control of washington, they were done in washington. just like democrats were done and so likely when bill clinton in 1994, well, they weren't. he wasn't. something happened along the way, each way, each day, they say it's humbling to lose, but i think it it should be even more humbling to win, to see in the moment that it is only a moment. that in a moment it could change. many times. my dad was a very wise man armed with only a high school education. he had a doctorate in something i like to call life. he got it. and he urged me and my brother and sisters to get this. never become so arrogant that you risk showing others you're an ass and never greater than when things are going your way, because contrary to what you think, people won't remember how you handled things when the chips were down, but how you handled them when the chips were up. democrats now, like republicans two years ago, would be wise to remember that. and fame is fleeting, success even more so. just remember, americans elected you to get a job done and if you can't do it in the next election, well, find someone who can.
there was a president's endorsement and bill clinton include add twin kwee in a time capsule. and it was put through a test. now the twinkie needs someone to come to its rescue or we'll have to say good-bye to the twinkie for good. >> well, when it comes to comedy, there are a few boundaries for "saturday night live," especially when it comes to mocking the media. this week they took aim at our own wolf blitzer. >> joining us now is the mayer of tampa, also known as derek "fat deuce" derek. >> what's up, homey? where you at? >> i'm in the situation room. >> straight up. >> all right, yeah. mr. mayor, what can you tell us about yokely seen here walking up and down the stairs repeatedly. >> jill kelley? >> mm-hmm. >> oh, she's fun. she's like a fun one. tampa all fun. tampa got everything. see gars, jill kelley, tap shoes, loose murderers. and jill kelley got a dress too. she's fine. >> and this is the same jill kelley seen here in a cnn drama tieization. >> oh, that's funny. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's
were working with bill clinton he moved the democrats towards the center in a key way through the dlc, became a new democrat as they called him. >> well, speaking of gifts, if mitt romney wanted to give a gift to the republican party, he'd spend the next four years in the mormon missionary in nepal. man's just got to shut up. but that's his business. look, we lost five out of six elections and then governor clinton decided for a change. mike tyson said everybody got a plan. they got hit in the mouth. their plan is end immigration, anti-gay stuff that's all going out the window if they've got any sense. we're going to see if somebody can bring them along that and they have to win the iowa caucuses or do well in them and take that message to south carolina. remember, their base is still sort of agitated out there. somebody's going to have to deal with that. the truth of the matter is they got hit in the mouth and going to have a new plan. >> what about that, ari? do you think it's time for a new republican, new republican orientation? >> no. but i do think there are some changes that ha
debate, how striking was it that when mitt romney presto, from his response was, well, under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity are the holy observer, is all about bill clinton and how nifty the economy was under him. i've got to tell you, i would've given a link to see that romney turned to him and say, mr. president, i knew bill clinton. [laughter] our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years has averaged 3.3% growth a year. and this president is fond of saying he inherited the worst economy in the history of the universe. and everything, by the way, is george w. bush's fault. he doesn't have much historical memory when he makes that argument. any of you all remember 1978, 1979? double-digit unemployment, 22% interest rates gas lines, stagflation in 1888 different president. ronald reagan inherited a struggling economy. and reagan implemented policies 180 degrees opposite those of obama. incentive jacking up taxes, he slashed taxes. instead of exploding spending on the
the plan, former republican senator alan simpson and former chief of staff for democratic president bill clinton erskine bowles. gentlemen, wonderful to have you on the program. i want to first get to this. have either of you or together both of you been asked to participate in any way in these fiscal cliff negotiations? >> i've talked to most of the members of the white house. i met over the last couple of days with what's called the gang of eight, four republican senators and four democrat senators. i'm going to update alan as soon as this ends. >> senator, you have not been involved in these talks so far. >> he's an hour away. i'm all day away. i live in wyoming. today we're 2 1/2 hours late getting out of denver. i have to get my good threads on later. erskine is the numbers guy. he's done this before. he's the last human being on earth to balance the budget in 1996. he knows the game. he furnishes it back to me. he has my proxy on every occasion. >> we work on it together. >> i guess we're all trying to figure out why it is that the plan has gotten blown off for, you know, a bad cho
to today, we've seen them go from about 31% voting for bill clinton in 1992 to 73% according to the exit polls in 2012. we don't see a similar dramatic shift for latinos. >> sandra, you saw the statistics. they echo each other. the two groups seem to be, and that's why we're asking the question today. the issue of immigration as well is very similar when you have a discussion at any one of the conferences that are out there for these particular constituencies. i want to bring up some numbers for you. there's a recent survey of hispanics that found they view jobs and the economy as the most important issue at 53%. that's followed by immigration reform at 35%. also in a survey, it found that asian-americans cite the economy and jobs as top problems for them. immigration doesn't make the top four for asian-americans in this group. talk about this, if you can. how do you explain the differences in those two groups in their view on immigration? >> it's interesting. like you say, when we talk to groups themselves, immigration is top for many asian and latino families. i think when it comes to
. bill clinton in third way politics. >> he moved the party to the center. >> i agree. tracy, i want to throw you a hanging curveball here, which i know you will smash over the fence. early in the show for all this talk of marco rubio and bobby jindal, a clip from cruz very much touted, texas senator now, who basically said these mandarins want us to give up on our principles. doesn't it sound like there's still a significant part of the republican party who says i don't think we should be moving. i don't think this is over. >> well, the combined choru of voices from jindal to christie to scott walker to others is this collective hook that mitt romney is getting that's pulling him off the stage in this vaudeville style and the question now becomes making politics more than just the surnames. i worry for the republicans that just saying, well, it's marco rubio or it's ted cruz that there becomes this reliance on something simplistic and really what is a good reminder from 2012 which we're all still recovering from but did it shall. >> it was only 13 days ago. >> 13 minutes, 13 days. b
cain says he knows just the man to do it. mccain says former president bill clinton should get involved. when he was president, mr. clinton held negotiations at camp david between israel and the palestinian authority. here's what mccain had to say about it on cbs' "face the nation." >> try to find someone, even as high-ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton. to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together. >> all right. the latest recount in florida shows congressman allen west trailing his democratic challenger patrick murphy by nearly 2,000 votes. west, a tea party favorite, is trying to keep this seat representing florida's 18th congressional district. unofficial numbers posted on sunday evening on the florida secretary of state's website give murphy an edge, 166,257 to 164,353 for west. >>> all right. 2016 is a long way away, but florida senator marco rubio sure looked like a presidential candidate during a visit to iowa. rubio appeared saturday night at a big
few jobs left out there for $22 an hour. i have a suggestion. bill clinton and david stockton agree on a solution for the entitlement program. they said to do away with the payroll tax and fund the medicare and pension system with a national sales tax, would eliminate the advantage that europe and the other nations have over us because they don't charge that on the exports. guest: many economists agree with your last point. the payroll tax cut is regressive and is a disincentive to save. many economists would agree with your point. bill clinton and david stockton can agree on something. they are more sensible than some in the political arena today. the point about dependency on public assistance -- i have not looked at this recently. i received permission to engage welfare reform. we meet the whole process much more work related. you have to participate in job- training. when a job came open, you had to take it. welfare rolls move down substantially. i think that is how the process should work. there should be a temporary way station, back to being a taxpayer once again. that is my
pressed obama his response was, well, under bill clinton there was great economic prosperity. the whole answer of obama is about bill clinton and now nifty the economy was under him. i got to tell you i would have given a limb to see mitt romney turn to the president and say, mr. president, i knew bill clinton. [laughter] our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years, we have averaged 3.3% growth a year. now, this president is fond of saying he inherited the worst economy in the history of the universe. [laughter] >> and everything by the way, is george w bush's fault. he doesn't have much historical memory when he makes that argument. any of all remember 1978, 1979, double-digit unemployment, 22% interest rates, gas lines, stagflation. in 1980, a very, very different president got elected. ronald reagan like barack obama inherited a struggling economy. and reagan implemented policies 180 degrees opposite those of obama. instead of jacking up taxes, he slashed taxes. instead of explod

is a former economic advisor to president bill clinton, former advisor to the senate finance committee and a partner with monument policy group. gentlemen, good to see you. jonathan, let me start with you. is it really unrealistic to think that a far reaching fiscal grand bargain can actually be hammered out during this brief lame duck session with all the holidays, or is it more likely that an interim deal which postpones all elements of the fiscal cliff will be signed? >> i think it's possible because i think a lot of conversations have been happening over the last several months. one thing that has to be very, very clear for republicans is whenever they're talking about raising taxes, they're getting into some potentially very, very dangerous territory. the reason for that is simple, because whenever these budget deals happen, the tax increases always take place immediately, but the spending cuts are enacted over two years o'clock five years, ten years. five years from now, we'll have a different congress, different members of congress, they're not going to feel bound to whatever de
the rates. think about it. we haven't touched it since ronald reagan really. in 1986. bill clinton did raise the rate one point but we haven't done anything to touch our rate and reform our code. every other country, all of them have. taxes gone from 16% to 15%. you do business there. this flow of capital will follow countries that have more competitive environment and taxes are one of them. yes, we have to reform the tax code. when you do that, i will get more revenue. it is guaranteed. again, sort of as i was talking about earlier. this is opportunities here. this is opportunity for us as a country. if you look at the congressional budget analysis and joint tax committee analysis, what tax reform could mean in terms of macroeconomic impact and growth, all will lead to more growth, whether corporate tax reform or individual tax reform. >> right but if the president insists as he did last friday, this was fought over in the campaign and, fought over tax rates, rising tax rates, he didn't ice the words rates himself but jay carney, the white house press secretary said the president will veto
years. both sides working. bill clinton was here, -- i would get up and make a speech. explaining stuff. he's more of a rock star than i'll are ever be. i just want to thank bono. [applause] i want to thank bono for stepping away from the microphone. i knew he couldn't rhyme. i'm glad he can fall back on adding and subtracting. as you know -- [laughter] [applause] , i mean, the one campaign, it might be the one thing all of us can agree on. [laughter] and all of this happens without social media. can you imagine what you can accomplish turbo charged? the power of these two is the power of technology the leverage they give us if they're willing to use it. i think we're. i know we are. i know, you are. whether you join one or buy red or join in ngo, we work alongside, we need you engaged in this fight. it's the defining struggle of our age. and it's not just aid. just getting smarter and smarter. it's trade and investment. social enterprise. working with the citizens i are to help unlock their domestic resources so they can do it for themselves. think anyone in africa likes aid? come on.
, there was a presidential endorsement as bill clinton included a twinkie in the millennium time capsule, and in the youtube age, we have seen the twinkie put to the test for shelf life, toughness, and microwavability. but now the twinkie needs someone to come to its rescue or we'll have to say good-bye to the twinkie for good. cnn, new york. >> thank you very much, allison. >> the blistering attacks between israel and gaza are stoking fears of an all-out war. just ahead, a high-ranking member of the palestinian legislative counsel joins me to give us her thoughts on the crisis and what she thinks could fifu diffuse the situation. having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt. and my daughter loves the santa. oh, ah sir. that is a customer. let's not tell mom.

: just a related note. jim saying president bush read -- raise taxes and bill clinton ran on the worst economy in 50 years. guest: to the last caller, i do not mean to disappoint you. i agree with what you are saying. we do not have a position that we should lower taxes on corporations. there are some democrats saying that. it seemed crazy to me. we desperately need the revenue to kickstart our economy. when you talk about the fact that our government has been captured by lobbyists and corporate interests, when i talk about -- talk to moveon members, that is the first thing they say. banks have absolutely capture the regulatory process. oil companies have a huge amount to say about what the energy regulations are. you can go right down the list. i totally agree that we have to change how campaigns are financed in this country and the revolving door that allows people to zoom right out of government into lobbying and back and forth. that door should be slammed shut. there are things we need to do to break the ties between corporations and big business and the government that should be s
world have transformed, reform, lower the rates. we have not touched it since ronald reagan. bill clinton raised at one point, but we have not done anything to touch the rates. the flow of capital investment and people is going to follow up of countries that have a more competitive environment. we have reformed the tax code and when we do that, you will get more revenue, it is guaranteed. we talked about earlier, there are opportunities here, for us as a country. for the joint tax analysis and what it could mean for macro- economic growth, ultimately it will lead to more growth. >> but if the president insists and says as he did last friday that this was fought over in the campaign and we fought over rising tax rates the white house tax secretary said the president would veto every bill that extends the current tax rate. if he insists that they go up, what would your recommendation be? >> having looked in two -- having worked in two white houses, first you want a president that can veto the -- the fiscal secretary, first of all. first of all, it was a bit behind the curve. it make
bill clinton expired. that meant that the so-called paygo rules on the finance tax cuts you couldn't expand new government programs unless you paid for, discretionary spending caps on the fed and other discretionary spending as fired and washington's fund totally out of control. three things happened in 2003. the second round of tax cuts we couldn't afford and we ought to return the deficits we invaded a sovereign nation without declaring war and without paying for it, and we expanded medicare to add prescription drugs added $8 trillion in the from the publications for medicare and was already a minn the underfunded. irresponsible, and things have gotten frankly worse since. >> host: mike is on the line from central massachusetts. mike is a democrat. good morning to you. >> caller: hello. i'm wondering why since our health care system is one of the biggest drivers in the national debt i'm wondering why we never hear the numbers comparing the single-payer system to the private health care system that we have in place now. or the politics to much in the way? i will hang up and wait f
clearly, every single republican economist said bill clinton's tax increase was going to cause a massive recession to every single one. just like every single republican pollster said that romney was going to win. they were 100% wrong, and we had a broom instead. so they have zero credibility. they are wrong about everything and they lie about everything. >> do you feel better? >> yes. [laughter] >> jamie, did you of anything else? okay. stephanie, you indicated that you have a formal think you would like to discuss, or you have some opening remarks and we will give you even though we are already open, so would you, please. you can get appear if you like, absolutely. >> i have a slight chill. -- slideshow. i thought everyone would have one. so, i guess when i started thinking about fiscal cliff and what the options are, i came up with essentially three. one is to do nothing. and hit the cliff and let the cuts go into place and tax increases going to place, what we've been talking about here. the other is to act with a sense of urgency, to avoid the cliff, strike some sort of a grand barg
of legislating. he is going to have to provide some leadership. when bill clinton was president, we got things done. welfare reform, put ability of insurance. balanced-budget and a surplus. clinton was directly involved. i remember getting a call from him at weird hours of the night. [laughter] >> i always wondered what he was doing a. [laughter] >> but he would know the section of the bill and how much money was in it. and i remember there was one like the children's health care thing and he said, i don't know, let's add 10 million more. but we made some concessions to him and he made concessions to us and we got the job done. but i guess now i'm going to begin to act a little bit like a republican. first of all, while the democrats won, i would not call this a mandate. there is a mandate, it is for the president and the congress to start working together. he does not talk to the members of congress. democrats will tell you that. he hasn't been engaged. the problem is not enough revenue. the problem is too much spending. now, some of the republican. the solution is that we are going to have t
in and won a historic election and after that, the next six years, bill clinton moved to the middle unlike barack obama who is still in left field. that when we had newt gingrich and balanced the budget about the late 1990's, and we cut the capital gains tax and the economy really did boom. you've got to do two things, you've got to cut the-- >> we've got to leave it there. just because of an accident. smart kid.

that washington isn't about politics. spent if you just listen -- >> what did bill clinton say? >> arithmetic. i like that moment for two reason. he was on a partisan pace and he was pointing out what numbers added up and wanted me but i also like the democrats were all chanting for arithmetic because i think both sides are going to have to realize that this has to add up and it can't just the sound bites on tv. the last thing i was to give me hope, i marched to all those bills. those are real bills that got passed, midsize, confidence. it was only 62-75 votes in the u.s. senate. we beat the filibuster and guided them. so that should give you hope that it didn't do is possible in the senate, and on some of those bills the majority of them, after we got down there was pressure on the house to get it done. there's a group of us have been supportive of the debt commission report, the general framework agreement agree with everything anybody has continued to push and meet. it somewhere between, depending on the day, 40-55 senators are so that's been meeting off and on for the last year to try to pus

-times" washington bureau chief, lynn sweet. bill, we'll start with you, you heard senator mccain, if hillary clinton leads the state department do you think that susan rice has a better chance at the job, especially after we heard on friday from senators conrad and feinstein, saying that rice was really only saying what she was told she could say from the c.i.a.? >> that's right. she appears to have followed talking points from the c.i.a., which were wrong. the talking points said that what happened in libya, that terrible tragedy was a spontaneous protest, hked by extremists. the problem was the information was incorrect. it was actually a premeditated terrorist attack. as the c.i.a. now acknowledges. that's an issue, it should be debated and fully discussed. i don't know that it is so terribly disqualifying, the way senators mccain and graham have made it out to be. as to say this woman is not qualified to be secretary of state. that's a very different issue. >> lynn, what do you think? you wrote about the issue and you say that the president, the roots go very deep with rice here. the commitment
